Thanksgiving Campout: A new tradition?

If you haven't figured out by now we like to do things slightly different than some people, and holidays are no different. 

When we threw out the idea of camping over Thanksgiving to our family and friends we didn't know what the response would be... but everybody LOVED the idea! 

It ended up being 4 travel trailers and families and TONS of food and good times. 

Definitely thinking it might become a tradition.... enjoy clicking through the images! 

November in Seconds

Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment before it becomes a memory. -Dr. Seuss

Are you like me and find something and think "WHY AM I JUST NOW FINDING OUT ABOUT YOU!?!"

No? Well ok then.

IF you are like me and need something to fall in love with, check out the 1SE app. I wish so badly I had this app so long ago.... oh well... keep marching onward right? And because I had just found it I needed to add in some cute end of October videos to this one ;) 

I plan on making these films for each month as well as random adventures we go on... so stay tuned! 

Saturday Mornings in the City - Charlotte, NC Couples Storytelling Session

"I think it's sweet when he puts his hand on my back if we're just standing in a line or walking around." -Katie


You know those people who you can go for lots of time not connecting because LIFE HAPPENED and then when you do re-connect it's like you never left? That's these people.

When we were in college, Grey's Anatomy had just come out, and we'd have "Grey's watching parties" and she was my person.  And then we met our Josephs and married them and moved away and what in the world it's been 10 whole years since then! 

I was super excited when she asked about me driving up to her city and doing a session of them doing their normal Saturday morning walk around the city. I asked them what they normally did around the city and they told me all about how they "like to take the lynx into the city... head to Romare Bearden Park with a great view of the skyline. There is a "piano" in the ground and who doesn't love stepping on that?!..." From there they visit a fun restaurant..."Coco & the Director is a new place for us. We've only been once, but it was pretty neat. They have stadium seating where you can bring your work or just to hang out."

When I asked them why they wanted to do this type of session they told me "We haven't had photos taken of us since our engagement/wedding and we've grown a lot (more like aged haha) since then." 

So often we only think about the big events in life and forget to celebrate the normal Saturdays with the people we love most. I'm so thankful to have been able to capture this for Katie and Joseph as they grow further into their marriage... because Saturdays may not always look like this but they'll always be beautiful because it's THEIR LIFE! 

If you're interested in how I can help you document your everyday life or even something special, contact me to day so we can chat about it! 

At Home on the Farm: Lexington SC Family Documentary Session

"I love our story. Sure, it's messy. But it's the story that got us here." -unknown

These people. 

They're some of our "people." Framily. 

The ones you get to see the good, bad, and everything in between with. 

And it's kind of a plus that their kids are our kids besties. 

So when they had their newest newbie, of course I needed to go document this huge change in their lives!

Spending time out on their little piece of country is good for the soul... for one because it's beautiful and I never want to leave, and two because when you're with people who get you, you want to linger... 

I'd love to chat with you about how I can come help tell your family's story... contact me today so we can get started!
